Report the truth and avoid disinformation, Pope tells Italian journalists
December 18, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: The mission of journalists is “to offer everyone a version of the facts conforming as closely as possible to reality,” Pope Francis said to members of the Italian Periodical Press Union and the Italian Federation of Catholic Weeklies. The Pope warned against disinformation, sensationalistic slander, and defamation, “looking for outdated and old things, and bringing them to light today; they are very grave sins.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
